Free shades.

On Friday afternoon I hunted a city beach for the 0.02 low tide. The only item I found on the exposed mudflats was a pair of Ray Bans in really good condition. The slope and dry sand gave up another $12.70 and very little else probably due to the very high tides moving a bit of sand around.
Still an enjoyable hunt though.

925 and Shuzi

I pounded the sand for about 3 hours today over two beaches. The first gave  up two rings. The flower one is 925 silver and the other a Shuzi stainless with CZ's valued at $249.00 new on their website. The second beach only gave $1.50 for the hour spent.




The reason for a sealed pack of 4 coins is unknown. It contains 2 x 10c and 2 x 5c The 5c are obsolete.

Dry sand rewards

With the tide high early afternoon again today I decided to continue dry sand hunting and it was quite a successful day. I dug 73 coins including a Fiji 50c and an English 50p. The total spendable cash was $27.30. As you can see in the pic my tally was boosted quite considerably by the ability of the CTX 303 to pull the steel coins as well as the copper and clad.  The Northerly wind was blowing like crazy with spits of rain so I had virtually the whole beach to myself until a bus load of tourists arrived and surrounded me. Thankfully the weather chased them away quite quickly after I dug a bottle top.


It was an enjoyable hunt with so many targets to dig.
